The Pagosa Brewing Company on the west side of town (also reviewed on this site) – which has outstanding beers and excellent food – now has some serious competition on the east side of town, right on Main Street.
Riff Raff Brewing Company has made great use of an old Victorian House. Inside is a mountain pub serving 8-10 of their house-brewed craft beers, plus several “guest” brews. For $5, you can get a taster flight of 4 small ones to try.
The menu consists of a few appetizers & salads and a bunch of sandwiches, primarily exotic burgers. One of their best sellers is the Big Lambowski, a grilled herb lamb patty with oregano lemon aioli and cucumber feta relish. Almost as good is the Cabrito Burger, a tender grilled goat burger (cabrito is a very young goat, like lamb) with garlic lime sauce and ale-caramelized onions and Hatch chiles. And there are many more, plus a couple non-burger sandwiches.
They are open for lunch, and when the weather is nice, their outdoor patio in the shade of the huge blue spruce trees is an absolutely delightful place for a burger and a brew. Excellent service.
